ACCIDENTS AND EMERGENCIES
Staff hold first aid qualifications and will treat minor injuries as required. Staff record all accidents in our accident book which you will be required to sign after a discussion with staff about the incident. You will also be asked to sign the accident book if your child arrives at pre-school with injuries.
When your child starts pre-school it is a legal requirement that you complete a registration form giving details about your child's needs and health (e.g. next of kin, contact numbers, doctors details, allergies, special diet, medication, etc) it also has a section which authorises staff to take action as appropriate and in the best interests of the child in the event of a serious accident or medical emergency. If such an event occurs staff will call you straight away and will continue to call until contact has been established. We shall however take whatever immediate and ongoing action is required until such time as you are able to arrive and assume this responsibility.
